We're joined by Joe from mintCast fame. The discussion starts off about audio editing and just spins out of control from there. Joe and Leo get into a few discussions about some games available on Steam. We talk a little about the Steam Deck. The Texas heat is a topic.

That erodes into a back and forth about stuff like D&D as well as Magic The Gathering. As the title suggests, it's a hot mess, but we had a lot of fun none the les...
